Hate: The Writing On The Wall (Book 2, Chapter 9)

Vanessa and Matt explore the theme of Hate in Chapter Nine of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. This week they discuss the discovery of Mrs. Norris's petrified body, Justin Finch-Fletchley's new fear of Harry, and the trio's Polyjuice Plan. Throughout the episode we consider the question: how is hatred a distinct and particular form of animosity?

Thank you to Kate for this week’s voicemail! Next week we’re reading Chapter 10, The Rogue Bludger, through the theme of Dignity.
